Welcome to the web page for the Iowa Section of the Mathematical Association of America.
We are a group of mathematicians who are
dedicated to further the development and understanding of, and instruction in, the mathematical sciences. Through this
organization, we seek to learn from one another's experiences and to encourage
our students to see the beauty and utility of mathematics.
We invite you to join us in these endeavors.
